DENVER (AP) — Hotels that sought to overturn $81.4 million in state incentives awarded to a hotel proposed near the Denver airport have lost their bid.

State officials awarded the incentives last year to the 1,500-room hotel that Gaylord Entertainment proposed building in Aurora. Gaylord later said it was re-examining its plans, and a new owner for the project was identified last spring.

Some hotels petitioned for the incentives to be revoked.

The Denver Post reported Thursday that (http://bit.ly/15L8Q3Q) the state's first assistant attorney general, Leeann Morrill, wrote in a letter to attorneys for the existing hotels that the petitioners didn't seek judicial review before the statute of limitations expired. The petition was rejected.
